SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

Spiritual Direction is a unique relationship in which a spiritual director helps you
notice God’s presence and activity in your daily life. This is done through attentive
listening and the use of spiritually formative questions. Through this process you
will become more aware of God’s presence and activity in your everyday life and
learn to hear and respond to God in an intimate relationship.


The real spiritual director is God. God touches the human heart directly. The human
spiritual director does not “direct” in the sense of giving advice and solving
problems. Rather, the director helps a person respond to God’s invitation to a
deeper relationship through reflective questions, reflecting back what has been
noticed and may offer resources that will direct you back to God.

Each session is approximately one hour long. We will start and end with prayer as
well as a short lectio divina exploration as an opening to hear from God. You will
then offer whatever challenges, life experiences or concerns you may want to
explore. My desire is to listen to you with L.O.V.E….Listen, Observe, Validate,
Express Empathy and help you notice where God is showing up in your life and
what He is inviting you to know, do or be.
The fee for direction is $65 per hour. We can meet in person or over Skype or FaceTime.

I felt empowered to make choices for myself and became freer to love who I’m made to be. You stood beside me and cheered on what the Holy Spirit is showing me. I came to trust hearing from God again.
